Equestrian Dream Property! River Creek Farm is an expertly designed and maintained, fully turn-key equestrian estate located in Lakeland, GA just north of Valdosta. The land and improvements were developed by professional horse breeders and every acre and building are crafted with all attention to detail. From the custom-built 4/2.5 home to the stables to the stocked fishing pond, this property is as rare a find as it comes in today’s market.
This beautiful farm is 51 acres +/- of manicured pastureland, ponds, creek, and old growth timber. Approximate land usage: 27 acres of pasture including stables, 20 acres wooded, 2 acres ponds, and 2 acres for the homesite and roads. The home on the property is a custom-built 4/2.5 with 3,147 sq. ft. of heated/cooled space and features tile and carpeted floors, high-end cabinetry and windows, vaulted ceilings, screened-in pool, sunroom, 2-car garage, walk-in closets and more. The attic space was designed to be easily finished to add an upstairs to the home should more space be needed. An insulated and enclosed 30×60 red-iron framed building is next to the house providing workshop space and a full 1/1 apartment for guests. The house is also serviced by a whole-house generator and automatic lawn irrigation system. The property has two wells – one which services the house and the other which services the equestrian facilities. River Creek Farm has been the home of Personal Ponies, Ltd. for years – a non-profit professional therapy pony program dedicated to breeding and training ponies for differently-abled individuals. The equestrian facilities are top-notch and expertly designed to accommodate a wide range of horses or livestock in order to provide the very best care and attention to the animals. The main barn is 40’x84′ and comes complete with 9 walk-through 12’x12′ stalls, a tack room with bathroom and washer/dryer, and additional stalls for feed, grooming, and storage. Several other outbuildings serve various purposes from feeding to grooming to shelter, and all are equipped with power and water. There are three primary fenced pastures with the ability to easily create smaller configurations with plenty of watering sources hooked up along the fence lines. There are three RV hook-ups next to the barn for visitors. The horse facilities are on a separate power meter from the house to easily keep track of business usage vs. personal usage.
The property has two year-round fish ponds, the larger of which is stocked with bass, bream and catfish. A seasonal hardwood creek forms the eastern boundary of the property and all boundaries are wooded with old growth live oaks, pines and hardwoods creating a private, secluded feel. Whitetail deer and other wildlife feed on the property edges and in the woodlands, opening up recreational opportunities or nature viewing. The property is a stone’s throw from the Alapaha River, and just a 5 minute drive from downtown Lakeland and 20 minutes to Valdosta, GA. Located close to the I-75 and Hwy 84 corridors allows for easy access from anywhere for travelers or transportation for horses or other livestock. The property is 2 hours to Jacksonville or Tallahassee, FL, and just over 3 hours to Atlanta or Orlando.
